Boise State University recently created the Commission on Diversity and Inclusion (CDI) to guarantee everyone a voice on campus.
“Inclusion is the key to leveraging
diverse perspectives,” Bob Kustra, the university’s president, said. This
includes different layers — status, title, role, ethnicity, gender — any form
of identifier. It will be a deliberative and representative effort.”
While the commission will focus more
on executive-level actions, members of different entities on campus also will
unite to form an advisory board tasked with making sure new ideas and all
perspectives are considered at all times.
The commission will be led by
co-chairs Gayla Thomas-Dabney, Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action
officer, and Donna Llewellyn, executive director of the Institute for STEM and
The advisory council will be
overseen by Prof. Arturo Rodriguez, chair of the Cultural and Ethnic Diversity
Board, and Alicia Garza, World Languages faculty member and director of Casita
“We live in a changing world where every chance meeting is
an opportunity for creating a global society where everyone is afforded basic human
rights, dignity and respect,” Rodriguez said.
